Fandom: Criminal Minds which belongs to CBS.
Summary: Morgan says something he doesn't mean.
Spoiler(s): Set during Soul Mates.
Warning(s): This is only the second time I wrote a fanfic in first person. Be kind.
Notes: Re-watching practically the entire show is not good for me. I keep getting these little ideas I just have to jot down in the middle of Bio lectures. It's not good. :D

I pretended that I couldn't hear him interrogating Harris in the other room. I pretended when he left and came to me for more answers that what he said didn't hurt.
I knew what I was getting into. It was just a fling between two co-workers. We never went on an actual date and he never stayed the night. No, we never went to his place. He didn't even trust me enough to take me home with him.
We solved the case before anyone else could get hurt, but I was hurt. I kept replaying those words in my head as I entered my apartment.
"I don't know what it's like to be in love with another man."
He would never love me, and I had to accept that. Yet, when there was a knock on my door at 4AM, I couldn't help the way my heart sped up or how I thought 'How could this not be love?'
He stood in the doorway, his eyes bloodshot and his clothes disheveled. He didn't drink often and I was concerned as I let him in.
"I didn't mean it," he said tentatively. "I know what it's like. Well, not to love any man. You. I'm in love with you. I just... I'm trying here Spencer, and I want this to work."
I wrapped my arms around him as I whispered "I love you too."
We might have to work hard for this... for us but if it's your soul mate, it won't be easy but it'll be worth it.
